    Because life isn't up to expectations...

    I think we daydream for a little escape. Our minds are so often bombarded with so much information, day in and day out, that our mind just needs a mini vacation! It's like a time-out for our brains. Much like breathing is mandatory and vital to us, daydreaming may be our mind's way of taking a mandatory and vital break from all the demands that we insist upon it.

    I think we daydream because we don't have any limits of our wishes and human nature is such that we are never satisfied.

      You are right, our wishes are unlimited and when one wish is achieved, another one is lined up.
      Thanks absinfo, for answering the question!

    Generally, daydreaming is a good thing to do as long as it is not too much. We realize our goals and ambitions in daydreams, or done something impossible on Earth to relax or release our spirits. Sometimes or many times, we feel it is ridiculous and just wasting time. Mums and teachers may forbidden daydreaming, "do not waste time daydreaming. Go to do something." However, we may find ourselves, find where we are, what we are in the daydream rather than in reality. Bottom line, daydreaming improves our creation. However, too much daydreaming will ruin everything, because it would indulge ourselves into virtual space and cannot wake up. Paulo Coelho said, "You need to wake up if you want to dream."

      Agree with Paulo Coelho and You, but unless we dream or daydream, how can we try to turn our beautiful ambitions  into reality!
      Thanks Hui, for your thoughtful answer!

    Everyone is ambitious and to achieve his or her ambitions one thinks about how to fulfill the ambitions. But when we start thinking we have to analyse, plan, try and convert our thoughts into actions, repeat the process to rectify the mistakes, keep on improving till we realize the dreams. To dream is not bad if backed by analysis, plan, action, rectification but day dreaming misses all the element except imaginary thinking and your mind or day dreaming can make you feel at the top of the world just to land on earth within no time.

      Very well said, wqindia!
      Daydreaming can be good, if we try to act upon it by proper planning and action.
      Thanks for your response!
